Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine, Section Chief of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Indiana University School of Medicine
Academic medicine has long faced the challenge of addressing health inequities, reflecting on how these contribute to structural racism, and perpetuating negative social determinants of health. Most recently, we have constructed opportunities for dialogues about racism, discrimination, and microaggressions (RDM). We will encourage participants to (1) openly discuss RDM and the impact they have in academia, (2) learn about tools to address and respond to RDM, and (3) move towards the creation of inclusive environments
Upon completion, attendees will have greater confidence in their conversations associated with racism, discrimination, and microaggressions (RDM).
Upon completion, attendees will be able to describe and identify concepts associated with RDM.
Upon completion, attendees will be able to recount instances of RDM occurring in their own educational, clinical, and professional spaces
Upon completion, attendees will be able to label RDM instances so that they can minimize becoming the perpetrators.
Upon completion, attendees will be able to use the OWTFD (Observe/Why?/Think/Feel/Desire) communication tool as a response tool to RDM.
